Student Council members hosted a night of Halloween events on Oct. 27. Some of the activities included pumpkin carving, cookie decorating, taco eating (provided by Tacos Mi Rincón Tapatio), a haunted house and a Halloween-themed movie, “Clue”.
At the start of the activities, students could decorate sugar cookies with various icings and sprinkles. Students decorated pumpkins, creating faces, media references and spooky themes.
“[My kids] loved decorating the pumpkins. My son Spencer especially liked carving the pumpkins and cleaning the insides. My daughter Stella just liked eating the cookies,” History Department Head Kyong Pak said.
The haunted house was draped in dark fabric to create walls and used strobe and black lights to make the path glow. Spread throughout the pathway were eighth- and ninth-grade students dressed in all black, save for the white masks that shone fluorescently from the darkness when the students jumped out at people passing through the haunted house.
“I was really excited for it, because it was fun scaring people. The white masks were a good addition,” senator Sophia Lindus ‘22 said.
The movie pick for this year’s Halloween movie night was “Clue.” Based off of the Hasbro murder mystery board game, “Clue” is known for having three different endings depending on which version is watched. The version screened by Student Council ended with Miss Scarlet as the killer.
Students said that they liked the movie.
“I really enjoyed ‘Clue’, and thought that it created a lot of story from just a board game,’ Lana Lim ‘22 said.
